Trigger Point Dry Needling is a western technique used by health care professionals where acupuncture needles are used in the release of trigger points, also known as “knots” or “spasm”, relieving symptoms related to muscle tightness. The effect is similar to massage, but is more effective in achieving a deeper release. Not all physiotherapists are trained in Trigger Point Dry Needling, so if you are interested in using this technique please indicate on booking. Your physiotherapist will still assess your injury or complaint prior to using the technique, as there may be another form of treatment more appropriate that they can offer.
